When a patient visits a medical professional exhibiting symptoms of depression, he or she may be prescribed a medication from a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs. One such SSRI is the drug Zoloft. Unfortunately, the use of this drug has also been linked to potentially severe and life-threatening side effects. As a result, an increasing number of patients and their families are filing lawsuits against the drug’s manufacturer.

3 Risks Associated With Zoloft Use

What are some of the risks that are associated with the use of Zoloft? The following are three examples:

  1. An increased risk of suicidal thinking and behavior. This is especially true when the drug is taken by children, adolescents, and adults.
  2. An increased risk of giving birth to an infant with a serious condition called persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, if the drug is taken during pregnancy.
  3. An increased risk of suffering from a life-threatening condition known as serotonin syndrome. Serotonin syndrome occurs when there is too much serotonin in the brain that can lead to excessive nerve cell activity.

These are just some of the potentially harmful side effects that may occur when a patient takes Zoloft to treat their depression. If you took this drug and suffered such complications, whether it be as a result of unreasonable risks associated with the drug or due to a dangerous interaction with the use of other medications, you may be entitled to compensation. It is important, however, to act quickly. We encourage you to contact us today for a consultation at 888-526-7616.
